CHEER ME UP

music and lyrics by Drew Hill

Sad and blue

Nothing new

Seems the whole damned world’s gone crazy, it's not you

                          

So ya’ dim the lights

Take a deep breath in

And your starting toward the door, where you came in

 

But ya’ can't go out

But ya’ can’t stay in

Or you swear you'll lose your mind all over again

 

And you turn to your phone

Seeking some desperate release

And you wish there was somewhere, to find some peace

 

Then amongst the hate, the lies and all the sorrow

There is one place you can be

 

Can I sing you a song to cheer you up my lovely

Won’t you tune in to sing along from near or far, where you are

And it's never too late to sing along my lovely

Can I sing you a song,

Can we all singalong with you...my lovely

 

Started out, like a bizarre dream

A virtual illusion so it seemed

 

Seemed so strange,

No audience in sight

But my screen said you were there, to share my night.

 

So I shut my eyes and the songs came through

And I played them like I never played for you

And suddenly, I could clearly see

That my past, present, and future were with me

 

Then amongst the hate, the lies and all the sorrow

There is one place you can be

 

Can I sing you a song to cheer you up my lovely

Won’t you tune in to sing along from near or far, where you are

And it's never too late to sing along my lovely

Can I sing you a song,

Can we all singalong with you...my lovely
